Angels Rise Again?

Seriously, there’s another Charlie’s Angels reboot on the way? In Reference to Murder’s B.V. Lawson reports that “Sony has lined up Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Auburn to pen the latest incarnation of the Charlie’s Angels franchise, to be directed by Elizabeth Banks. It might seem an odd choice to tackle a franchise that began as a TV showcase for bikini-clad detectives in the 1970s, but the move is strategic on the part of Sony and Banks, who are seeking rich, fully developed characters and not just pretty faces plugged into action, or as Hollywood Reporter put it, ‘less ass, more class.’”

Maybe this time they will do the show as creators Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts intended - as a comedy not a light crime drama.
